On Tuesday of last week, Elder Casdorph and I got a new investigator from Alberta! He is a young adult and has a western Untied States accent. He wears cowboy boots and wants to live in a small town a own a farm. He is awesome. Seriously the opposite of what anyone would expect from someone from the middle east. AND he wants to be Baptized!!!!! He has been going to church for the past couple months in Alberta with all of his high school buddies (Alberta is loaded with Mormons) and is now living here with his family. The only catch is that he is worried how his family will take it.... and he is scared to tell them about his conversion and desire to be baptized. If you have ever heard the Bill Carpenter conversion story, I imagine it to be something like that.

Well in other news. I was on exchange with Elder Holden in Scarborough and it is a completely different world over there. So much so that they have their own Scarborough slang, hence the title of my email "Wagwan" which is a greeting in Jamaican I think. We spent the day contacting every different ethnicity you could imagine. I <3 Toronto.

One of the blessings of being a missionary that speaks a weird language is that we get to teach people from all over the world over Skype! While I was on exchange Elder Casdorph received a referral for a lady in California! We don't know much about her other than she has enough desire to want to speak to us over Skype.

Hope you all have an amazing week!
